cotton skirt

I made a skirt! Sewn. On the sewing machine (though I admit, I did the hem by hand*).

Unfortunately because it is (a) May Bank holiday and (b) I was planning a walk by the river, it is, naturally, raining. So it's indoor photos, and without the best light. But I think the fabric is strong enough to cope with a bit of a grey sky. And, yes, the red dots on the shoes are lady birds.

* Unlike about everyone I know, I like hand sewing, I find it easier. I think it comes from being such an extreme kinesthetic learner.

Hehe it's cute (so are your shoes).

Aie! The rain in London. The tubes are smelly and sweaty. Yuck.

I'm a sucker for cute flats (shoes, that is), and those are definately adorable.

Does the skirt have pleats in it, or is that just an optical illusion from the nifty fabric?

Cute!
And of course, since it's not a holiday in the US, it's sunny :(
It's not fun working when it's sunny.

I much prefer hand sewing too! On the machine I can never get edges to match up properly, things pucker....

Very nice skirt; I love the fabric.
